If you’ve got $23,200 and want something awfully unique as a city car, the Fiat 500 Gucci might just tick the box.
Unashamedly Italian and with the unmistakable Gucci colours proudly covering the sides (hatchback) or roof (cabrio), the Fiat 500 Gucci is not likely to go out of fashion anytime soon.
It’s not just a regular paint job either, it’s pearl glass paint which makes use of glass beads so the pain shines ‘like a gem’. Very Gucci.
There’s other Gucci highlights too, such as the alloy wheel centre caps which carry the GG symbol colour matched to the car’s paint and green rear brake callipers.
Move inside and the Fiat 500 Gucci also makes its mark on the seats and seat belts, with the Gucci colours flowing through the cabin. There are plenty of other little highlights, such as chrome elements and a funky velvet-effect treatment for the dashboard.
The six-speaker 100-watt Interscope sound system is standard on Gucci variants, but Bluetooth audio streaming is not available. Fiat-Chrysler Australia has managed to secure just 101 of the 500 Gucci editions, available in both hatchback and cabrio body types.
All Gucci models are powered by a 1.4-litre four-cylinder engine that produces 74Kw of power and 131Nm of torque.
As with all the high-end Fiat 500s, the Italian city car is available only with a Dualogic clutchless manual transmission, which is an automatic transmission but not in the traditional sense (read the Fiat 500 Review).
